AMARR PRIME – In the final phase of the most sacred rituals of the Amarr Empire, the noble Royal Heirs of the Imperial Houses of Amarr, who served during the reign of Her Imperial Majesty Jamyl I, surrendered their lives in the Rite of Shathol’Syn tonight.
All of Holy Amarr remembers the faith and service of the late noble sovereigns of the Houses of the Privy Council:
His Royal Highness Yonis Ardishapur, Holder of Derelik and the Demesne of Ardishapur
His Royal Highness Uriam Kador, Holder of Kador
His Royal Majesty Garkeh Khanid, King Khanid II of the Khanid Kingdom and Lord of the Marches
His Royal Highness Aritcio Kor-Azor, Holder of Kor-Azor and Imperial Chancellor
His Royal Highness Merimeth Sarum, Holder of the Demesne of Sarum
With the deaths of their noble predecessors, and the ascension of Her Imperial Majesty Catiz I, the Houses of the Privy Council are now led by the newly confirmed sovereign lords of their family domains:
His Royal Highness Arim Ardishapur, Holder of Derelik and the Demesne of Ardishapur
Her Royal Highness Hamideh Kador, Holder of Kador
His Royal Majesty Farokh Khanid, King Khanid III of the Khanid Kingdom and Lord of the Marches
Her Royal Highness Ersilia Kor-Azor, Holder of Kor-Azor
His Royal Highness Arrach Sarum, Holder of the Demesne of Sarum
His Royal Highness Tunir Tash-Murkon, Holder of Tash-Murkon
By Order of the Privy and Theology Councils.
CSM 11 recently finished its first summit in Reykjavik, discussing all aspects of developing and running EVE with a wide representation of EVE's developers, producers and executives.
The democratically elected Council of Stellar Management has long been an important advisory group to CCP and at least half the council has typically been flown to CCP HQ twice a year to allow for seamless communication and exchange of opinion.
This year big changes are coming to EVE with Clone States fast approaching. CCP invited the whole CSM to attend the summit in person. Everyone accepted and we had four days of solid meetings and feature demos with all 14 councillors.
The meeting minutes are a collaboration between CCP and the CSM. A CCP staff member jots down meeting mintues on our internal wiki during each meeting and they are then edited through an open editing process on the same wiki. Every CCP staff member attending a meeting, and the CSM, must review and approve the version of the minutes that goes out. Typically not a lot is changed. Sentences get tuned to better convey meaning and of course a few tiny bits are redacted to preserve surprise and wonder at a later date.
This summit's minutes can be found here. We look forward to reading, and taking part in, your discussions of them. If you wish to discuss them on the forums, please visit this thread.
